Looking at the full picture, you may think this is in no way up to the standards the Athlon XP or Pentium 4 give us today, however, VIA is not aiming to take this out - not by a long shot. VIA's view of the EPIA is for the Home Theater and low end workstation market with a push on the office environment. At around $320 AU retail price on the latest VIA EPIA motherboards with just about everything you need onboard, it turns out to be a very cost effective system in the long run.
VIA's development on the latest EPIA core C3's has come a long way since the introduction of the original C3, and it shows in our latest tests. While still not able to claim current day game worthiness, it is worth more than a second or third look when it comes to an office station or home entertainment system. We look forward to future developments from VIA in this product area as they continue to improve.
